I was reading the Conclusion chapter of “Programming Python” by Mark Lutz a short while ago and found something worthy to record here… [[No, No, I have not completed the book; I just started the Conclusion after reading the Preface šŸ™‚ ]]

Java is meant for tasks where the extra complexity makes sense….. Python complements systems languages like Java and C++, rather than competing with them”
